As far as visionary science fiction directors are concerned, Neil Blomkamp is very high on my list of awesomeness. His gritty filming style and storytelling in “District 9” (as well as an amazing performance by Sharlto Copley), won me over and “Elysium” was also pretty awesome. Now they’re back in what looks to be a retelling of “Pinnochio” with robots. The cast looks solid with Copley as “Chappie”, Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel and those 2 creeps from that rap group DIE ANTWOORD. (Just kidding, I actually like them) Check out the awesome trailer below.
I have a feeling we are all going to root for “Chappie”, then something will happen to him and I’ll be sobbing in my underwear while I wipe tears from my face with cheetos dust-covered fingers. “Why are you wearing underwear in a movie theater?” Mind your business! What are you? The fun police? “No, we’re the actual police.” Oh, well in that case…NINJA VANISH!
